Words by Anselm Anderson

The Van Gogh inspired  Michigan rockers Van GoGo return to the scene with " Imaginary Friend", the follow up to the popular"Big Mistake". The four-piece first formed in 2008 by veterans, Lead vocalist Nathan Mackinder and guitarist Jason Schaller, who were soon joined by drummer Jonah Brockman and bassist Paxton Olney. VanGoGo soon grew tired with life on the road and soon disbanded. They soon decided 2020 was a great time to forge a comeback and have set about with a slew of single releases.

Imaginary Friend is three minutes of guitar-driven punk with huge choruses and thought-provoking lyrics. A chugging three-chord guitar line explodes into a catchy melody. The song's pounding drums and effective hooks will leave you thinking some friends are not worth the hassle.

Mackinder delivers a powerful vocal performance with a hint of cynism. He adds about the track, "This song is about betrayal. Some of your worst and most hurtful enemies start out disguising themselves as your best friend, what I call an "Imaginary friend"'. 

Van Go Go paint a new picture of betrayal with this exhilarating song.
